WORLD BROKEN!

A thousand years in the future, green-skinned Haarg, like Tala and her brother Balo, are reviled and persecuted on Planet Sakaar. So when Balo was kidnapped by an evil priestess, Tala enlisted the help of her Grandpa Cho, the Jen, and Korg of Krona to break him free. But as the priestess reveals her true endgame, only the power of Banner, the Green Scar himself, can stop her. But is that just part of the priestess’ plan? Our story of prophecy, damnation and redemption comes to a shattering conclusion!

    Greg Pak ends his recent mini-series that takes us back to Planet Sakaar and if this is the writer’s final jaunt with the Incredible Hulk, it’s one amazing send-off. This story worked as not just a fantastic sequel to the original “Planet Hulk” but an interesting, in-depth character study of Bruce Banner and his greener side. At the end of the day, when a major complaint that you have with a series is that you think it should continue in some form or fashion, then the creators have hit it out of the park. Pak and Garcia have created an interesting, worthwhile finale for Marvel’s emerald bruiser and should the two never return to Banner’s world, this makes for a beyond-satisfying send-off.

    Major Spoilers

    I am disappointed with the ending of Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #5. I am not convinced it kept the promises it set out in earlier issues. I enjoy many of these ideas, but I think my desires for the book differed from the writing team’s creative intention.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    This story was unnecessary. Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #5 has very few answers and fewer plot threads to grab onto to drive this mini-series home. The overall intent from the Priestess is never totally understood and ultimately, this issue in particular, felt like so much story was written off panel and left on the cutting floor. Why was this only five issues? Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #5 raced through to the end providing little answers while throwing symbolism at all of the narrative problems.

    Ambiguity became the plot device coupled with silly solutions and pointless story beats that were either never answered or deemed insignificant as Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker comes to a close. Truly, the main purpose of this series was to draw people in with the name, and attempt to find the same success the recent Maestro runs did in hopes to extend the brand. Sadly, that was not the case and I’m afraid only did damage to the original Planet Hulk. I would not recommend this issue or this series.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #5 ends the mini-series on a solid but unsatisfying note. The Hulk action makes the world tremble, but the villain’s motivations and plan are unclear, and her final moments are left unresolved. You feel like Pak had a point to make, but he never finished making it.

    The Hulk’s last sacrifice is made thinking of all those people he lost for being the Hulk, like Caeira and Betty.

    Art
    It’s full of details with a close resemblance to the original Planet Hulk art but freshening it up with bold new angles.
